12.18.2022…..Happy Sunday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It’s a fun, creative “ Use Your Stash Challenge”.
When I saw theme of this challenge, I immediately knew I was going to use the Whimsical Trees Bundle (from the July – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog), along with the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper. For the background, I used a Blending Brush, along with Misty Moonlight (one of the 2020-2022 Colors). To add an extra bit of sparkle, I used the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Catalog), Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels.

For this card, I started with some Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. I then add two different patterned papers from the Whimsy & Wonder DSP.
To create the background, I used a Blending Brush to add soft swirls of Misty Moonlight to some Basic White Thick Cardstock. I then stamped the tree (from the Whimsical Trees Bundle) several times, using my Misty Moonlight Classic Stampin’ Pad. Next, I used my Water Painter to “flick” water drops across the cardstock, then dried it with a Heat Tool, I then my Water Painter, along with a few drops of my White Craft Ink Refill (mixed with a tiny bit of water) to add some white speckles. (To create the speckling, I “flicked” the end of the brush against the inside edge of the brush cap, and “flicked” outward towards the cardstock.) Once the cardstock was dry, I used one of the Stitched with Whimsy Dies to create a little bit of a border, then popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To create the tall, narrow trees, I used a Water Painter to add Polished Pink and Mint Macaron to Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Once the paper was dry, I cut out the trees with two little tree dies (from the Whimsical Trees Bundle), and popped them up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the large tree, I used the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (from the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Catalog), along with the larger tree die from the Whimsical Trees Bundle.
The sentiment (from the Whimsical Trees Bundle) was heat-embossed on Basic White Thick Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To create the bow, I used a Light Polished Pink to color some White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, then cut the ribbon in half lengthwise. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels.
